* WeaponOfChoice:
** Bell uses a revolver for a service pistol.
** Chigurh carries a captive bolt pistol wherever he goes and also has a silenced shotgun to sneak up on targets with.
** Moss ''doesn't'' have a signature weapon, using whatever's at hand while on the run. He uses everything from his hunting rifle to a SawedOffShotgun.

West Texas, 1980: When rugged Vietnam veteran Llewelyn Moss (played in the film by Creator/JoshBrolin) finds the horrific aftermath of a botched drug deal and takes a suitcase filled with money, he sets in motion a spiral of violence beyond his control or comprehension. An old and unhappy sheriff, Ed Tom Bell (Creator/TommyLeeJones), is determined to prove that there's still a place for justice in an otherwise unfair and cruel world as he sets out to find Moss and protect him from the owners of the money.

There's just one small hitch: an assassin has been sent after the stolen money, and he is ''a complete sociopath''. Anton Chigurh (Creator/JavierBardem) is a man willing to do ''absolutely anything'' -- to "[[{{Ubermensch}} follow a supreme act of will]]", as [[BlueAndOrangeMorality he puts it]] -- in order to get what he's after... and it's no longer just the money he's after.

* Motifs: Throughout the movie, cowboy boots are heavily focused on, whether its through the frequent shots of Anton Chigurh's or having an entire scene devoted to Llewelyn buying them, with this fixation emphasising the NewOldWest atmosphere of the film as a whole.
